Nell Nutsford - MFA

Graduated: 2008

Dissertation topic: Painting; investigating the literal mechanics of painting

Recent work:

My practice exploits – through reversal – the communicative possibilities of painting itself. My work – drawings, paintings, self-formed objects and their photo micro-documentations - resists any performed gesture, investigating instead the deciphering of paint’s material action, with all its vagaries, intricacies and aberrances.

Employment:

Fine Arts lecturer, Media Arts, Wintec, Hamilton

Guest Artist – January Seminar, Whitecliffe College of Art and Design
